The Europe of repression strikes a blow at social protest in Ireland

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 18:18
Translation by John Catalinotto
Hundreds of thousands of people in this small country have been protesting against this policy and the government has encountered a campaign of civil disobedience without precedent, in which the majority of the population refuse to pay. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27910]

Kobane’s Second Phase: Resistance and Necessities

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 15:44
After 134 days of fierce resisting and defending. The women, men and their combatants with the support and solidarity from millions of people around the world had finally defeated the vicious attack from ISIS and liberated their town Kobane. This was not just a defeat for ISIS and it’s dream to establish an Islamic Kelifat. But it had also destroyed the ISIS’s ally the current Turkish government’s dream to resurrect a Neu-othman empire.

The attack on Kobane was a proxy war launched by ISIS on behalf of the regional regimes and others against the bravery people in Kobane and the Democratic Self administration (DSA). [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27961]

Anarquismo e Nossos Tempos (tradução revisada)

Anarkismo - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 15:10
Neste texto de 1925, Nestor Makhno discute conceitualmente o anarquismo e o relaciona à sua época. Trata-se, entretanto, de uma tradução revisada, que soluciona um grande problema de outras traduções. Por algum erro, não sabemos se de Alexandre Skirda – que organizou o livro de Nestor Makhno, "La Lutte Contre L’État et Autres Écrits", por meio do qual este texto foi difundido – ou da editora que publicou o livro, o fato é que os artigos “Anarquismo e Nossos Tempos” e “Nossa Organização” tiveram parte importante de seu conteúdo invertida. Praticamente toda a segunda metade do primeiro texto foi colocada no segundo e vice-versa. Nesta versão, que compõe o conjunto de textos relacionados ao debate da "Plataforma", a questão foi resolvida, a partir da orientação do Nestor Makhno Archive, que endentemos ser adequada.

Estados Unidos, Cuba y la proyección geoestratégica

Anarkismo - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 18:25
Por Bruno Lima Rocha

Cuando la Casa Blanca anunció la reanudación de las relaciones diplomáticas con La Habana, algunos medios de comunicación brasileños pidieron que hiciera un análisis. Me acerqué al tema desde un punto de vista y no de forma ideológica geoestratégica. Hago aquí un resumen de esta contribución, entendiendo que la cuestión sigue abierta. El acercamiento gradual entre los EE.UU. y Cuba fue anunciado en cuarto de la tarde, 17 de diciembre, con la debida solemnidad. Al mismo tiempo, el presidente estadounidense Barack Obama y el comandante en jefe (con estado general), Raúl Castro, informaron al mundo y especialmente a América Latina que las relaciones entre los dos países se someterán a una distensión progresiva. Hay varias líneas posibles de análisis para discutir el caso.

Interview about Rojava – Topics for Debate: Questions about the Strategic Scope

Posted on February 27, 2015 – Bruno Lima Rocha

[Editor’s Note, Conjuncture Magazine: A dear friend and supporter of ours from Brazil, Dr. Bruno Lima Rocha, established contact with a series of organizations involved in the social revolution taking place in Kurdistan. Mainstream media sources have largely failed to cover the social process, though news have been able to break the radio silence. This is the second internview we publish in this series

It should also be said that minor grammatical errors were corrected (as neither participant in the interview is native to English). But most is left in the original form, for fear of losing accuarcy.]

[Chile] Sexualidad placentera y maternidad elegida ¡Yo elijo! Dónde, cómo y cuándo

Anarkismo - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 09:17
Hace algunas semanas Bachelet envió el proyecto de ley sobre aborto terapéutico. La iniciativa causó diversas reacciones entre la derecha y miembros conservadores de la Nueva Mayoría. El ejemplo más triste fue el protagonizado por el diputado DC Pablo Lorenzini quien afirmó que algunas violaciones se producían porque las mujeres habían bebido unos “traguitos de más”, por su parte la Iglesia quiere impedir su aprobación a toda costa. Y como siempre poco se ha escuchado la voz de las mujeres. A continuación reproducimos una columna escrita por la Alzada publicado por Solidaridad el año 2013. El debate continúa y es pertinente recordar quienes han impulsado la batalla en defensa de los derechos de las mujeres.

[Chile] Jaulas para pobres: la crisis carcelaria como reflejo de la sociedad actual

Anarkismo - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 09:16
Publicado originalmente en la revista anarquista chilena Solidaridad número 5, Febrero del 2011
Se ha preguntado ¿por qué los dueños de las farmacias no fueron encarcelados tras comprobarse que se coludieron para subir los precios de los medicamentos?, ¿por qué el hijo de Carlos Larraín a pesar de haber atropellado en estado de ebriedad y asesinar a una persona sin prestarle ayuda tampoco fue a la cárcel? ¿Cree que los políticos acusados de corrupción por caso Penta serán castigados?, ¿será porque a la cárcel solo van los pobres? A continuación reproducimos una columna sobre el régimen carcelario chileno por Periódico Solidaridad el año 2011, a meses del incendio en la cárcel de San Miguel donde fallecieron calcinados 81 reos.

March 13th: Unions Strike Across North of Ireland, but One Day isn't Enough

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 09:00

On the 13th of March, unions across the north of Ireland will be striking against another round of service cuts and job loss proposals including the introduction of prescription charges.

The Minister for Health would like to introduce prescription charges across the 6 Counties. The DUP’s Jim Wells claims that this is to be done in order to provide a “cash injection” to his department to create a specialist drug fund which would pay for drugs that are either too expensive or too specific to be licensed right now. In doing so he is proposing £3 per item and hopes to raise between £5m and £10m per year claiming that this is not “unreasonable”. But it is unreasonable; the rich should be taxed for this.
